How do you go about arranging flights for guests and for yourselves, when there is no TA available. I'm getting married at El Dorado Royale on July 2008, and just made reservations for suites and transfers ONLY through
Lomas Travel. Lomas tells me they don't do airfare, and my what used to be Travel Agent, doesn't do airfare unless she also does hotel and transfers.
FI' says not to worry, cause most guests would actually rather book their own flights online anyway. If I go with this plan, how is everyone assured of arriving on the same day and around the same time. I'm so clueless to when it comes to flight arrangments. I've heard of brides telling their guests to do both on their own. I don't see how guests would react to this though.
I don't know what to do . Please help

When you book with travelocity, do you print your tickets or do they come in the mail? Also, are there other websites such as travelocity that you think are worth trying? Thanks again.

i am going to contact the airlines directly and get a discount code - that is the best advice i can give you...

That's what I did (with Air Jamaica). I chose the two cities with the highest traffic for my guests and negotiated a group rate. This held a certain number of seats (I think it has to be at least 10) and reserves them at a discounted rate.
If you have guests who are arriving and departing on different days, it may be best to let them negotiate their own flight arrangements. Good luck!

It would be great to check into discount codes, but beyond that, your guests should be able to book on their own. Even when you book direct, flights change or get cancelled. Our guests used a mixture of online services and Travel Agent.. no complaints from either.

Your friends and family should be able to find their own airfare if necessary. Sites like Cheaptickets, Expedia, Travelocity, and Hotwire are great for researching flights and sometimes even getting a deal. That being said, if you want everyone on 1 specific flight, I would try to work out a deal with the airline.
